The Story of Subluxation
Subluxation is a complicated sounding word for a relatively simple concept. We start by imagining the spine as 24 separate vertebrae rather than one long bone. Accentuating each vertebrae, to ensure they don’t grind on eachother outright, are intervertebral discs made up of cartilaginous material. Diverging from the spinal cord, which is the nervous system’s super highway, are nerve roots that supply energy to the organs, tissues and glands of our bodies. Over time, due to repetitive trauma, acute injury, or a host of other factors, the intervertebral disc can be compromised, allowing for compression of the nerve roots. Up to this point, you may have been unaware that any deterioration was occurring, but now you can distinctly feel the pain and swelling that restricts movement.
At Holmes Chiropractic, we are more than familiar with this story. We correct subluxation with chiropractic adjustment, restoring balance to the back and removing compression from the nerves. By focusing our attention on massaging injured tissues, we speed the healing process and reduce inflammation. Before you know it, your are back on your feet feeling freer than ever: chiropractic is particularly good at restoring lost range of motion and flexibility.
Our goal is to determine the true cause of your health problems and, if possible, correct it so that you can live your greatest life possible. Call our office in Houston and find out what we can do for you today.
